After many many years of debate, I took the plunge and got my ears pierced by a needle.
When I was 18, I went with a roomie and we got our ears pierced by a piercing gun. My ears didn't like it, they always seemed angry with me. I got lumps in my ear lobes and while I wore real gold earrings, they never seemed to really heal. I tried re piercing them too later on, but it still was bad and
I now have scar tissue.
I took out my pearl drop earrings the night of our wedding and couldn't get them in again in the morning.
"So much for that" said I
My hubby waited patiently almost 17 more years before I surprised him by getting them pierced again.
I am not one for pain ... ha ha.
In all my research beforehand, I read that using a piercing gun can force your outer layer of skin INTO your inner ear lobe tissue and cause problems. Problems like I had.
Piercing with a sharp needle is different. It pushes the skin aside and is much cleaner.
I was happy with the experience. It was a little claustrophobic making because I had them do both at one time and that sorta invaded my personal space! ha!

They were a little hot feeling at first, but I soon forgot about it. I bought a cleaning spray and used it. Now a month later, I forget all about them. PERFECT!
Did I say my hubby LOVES them? Hee hee, it was worth every penny and I don't see them being a problem this time!
